sOrte outside his area, he could only accompany him by executing the immediate and unrestricted strike of the Bayer Leverkusen striker, practically on the midfield, after blocking a Scottish shot (52).
Already before the break, it was Shake who rose above Liam Cooper to open the scoring with a header (1-0, 42).
Ten grueling minutes for the Scots who sorely lacked realism in front of goal.
Tomas Vaclic, at 32, may have lost his starting spot in Seville, but he remains a favorite fortress in the national team.
In turn, captains Andy Robertson (32) and Lyndon Dykes (66) and even the veering of his defender Thomas Callas (49) saw their path toward the net interrupted by Vaclic.

These missed opportunities will add to the discontent of the 9,847 spectators who were allowed to fill the stands of Hampden Park, not to mention the millions of Scots of all ages who took a break from work or school to watch the historic event virtually on TV.
The defeat puts the Scots in an already very delicate position in the standings.

The Czechs moved top of the group on goal difference and were full of confidence on the field as they face Luka Modric and others, also in Glasgow on Friday as well.
